Common Symptoms of Hernia

A lump in the abdomen or groin; pain or pressure that gets worse when you cough, strain, lift, or exercise; a burning feeling in the lump; and steady, growing pain are some of the symptoms of hernia.

Dr. Anthony Gonzalez, Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at South Miami Hospital, says people do not feel the hole, they feel what is protruding out of the hole, and with time the pain will intensify and start affecting their activities of daily living.
